EPISODE174 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week on Talking 80s Music, we focus on Texas singer-songwriter/guitarist Charlie Sexton. Releasing some of his earliest music at the age of 15, he would release his solo debut album two years later, become an in-demand session guitarist, formed a band and, during the last few years, became Bob Dylan's guitarist. Expect to hear a retrospective mix, a live version of his hit "Beat's So Lonely" and "Don't Look Back."

Fun episode. Yes, it's our last one with the news section included as we've put our work there to rest. We will feel our way around it for future episodes but it should free things up quite a bit. There were some oddities with the show technically speaking. The audio recorded during the live show didn't come through as well as we'd like (sounded a little tinny.) We couldn't help the audio on the live track as it has a little hum from the television production it came from. He didn't record much live so it is one of the few documents we have to showcase his ability on stage. So, we have to take what we get. But our thanks go out to Linda for requesting a Charlie Sexton episode at our Facebook group area.
